Subject: A very special mid-victorian childrens book
This dear little book is very worthy of being scanned and distributed by the Internet Archive. I have an original copy from 1854, and it is a book I will always treasure.

The characters of each of the presents that young Karl Krinken receives in his Christmas stocking are so lively and well drawn.

There are so many wonderful incidental details that this book comes alive, even reading as an adult.

The edition that has been scanned is a lovely one and has the complete set of original illustrations.

This is one of the most readable Victorian childrens books ever.
